Patrick, maybe you should join Oh the Horror group. Not seen Nekromantik 2, but it looks like a similar movie as the much less grusome May.

When May was a child, she was a lonely girl with one lazy eye and without any friend but a weird and ugly doll kept in a glass case given by her bizarre mother on her birthday. May becomes a lonely weird young woman, working in an animal hospital and assisting the veterinary in surgeries and sewing operated animals most of the time. Her lesbian colleague Polly has a sort of attraction for her. When the shy May meets the mechanic Adam Stubbs, she loves his hands and has a crush on him. They date, but the weirdness and bizarre behavior of May makes Adam moves away from her. Alone, May has a brief affair with Polly, but she feels rejected again when her colleague meets Ambrosia. When her doll is accidentally broken, the deranged May decides to build a friend for her, using the best parts her acquaintances can offer.

Sydni, Taking Woodstock looks like a fun film.

John Pankow is one of those actors where you will recognise his face, but not his name. I had to look up his name, as I did not know it either. He and Willem Dafoe (I need to check the grammar there in your other group) are in the film about a minute tops.

@ Sacha: Yes, The Hunger is an old classic, and I think well done, too. Deneuve is great in the role, and she is definitely one of my top ten favorite actresses. The film has a wonderful atmosphere. Very sophisticated. I know Dafoe, but I don't remember him in the movie, and I don't know who John Pankow is, off the top of my head. I guess I'll look him up.

The Hunger 1983

United Kingdom

starring:
Catherine Deneuve
David Bowie
Susan Sarandon


This film is so very dated, (I just watched it for the second time, the first time I saw it was 1983) but if you can get past that, it has a bit more depth than the usual vampire movie.

The lesbian scene was perhaps even racier than what you see today. It was artistic and well done.

Catherine Deneuve was perfectly cast and Susan Sarandon and David Bowie suited their characters as well.

I was not fond of the conclusion of the film, but most of the film was worth seeing again after 26 years. (An added ending scene was added post-production in order to make a sequel possible.)

Take note of a very brief cameo by John Pankow and Willem Dafoe long before they were well known.

For those who might be interested:


This July, Criterion commemorates the fortieth anniversary of the earthshaking Apollo 11 moon landing with an all-new, restored rerelease of Al Reinert's amazing 1989 documentary For All Mankind, available in both DVD and Blu-ray special editions. Of course, we’re hardly the only ones getting all moonfaced and starry-eyed this month: astronaut Alan Bean's Apollo paintings have been getting some attention, both from the New York Times and as part of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's anniversary celebration; Buzz Aldrin just released a new memoir, Magnificent Desolation; and Abrams just put out the beautifully illustrated hardcover book Apollo: Through the Eyes of the Astronauts. So if you’ve never seen Reinert's astonishing film—which looks back on all the moon missions from the point of view of the twenty-four brave men who dared to go—now's the time. And if you have, it's the perfect month to take another trip to the moon.

Just saw Special. Which is a film about a man who participates in a trial of a new anti-depression drug. The result is that he believes he has super powers. He soon begins tackling crime whilst being chased by men in black suits. How much of this film is a delusion and how much is real only you can decide. The film has a cast of B-listers who all act remarkably well, particularly the lead actor Michael Rapaport who plays Les.

Any Harry Potter fans here? I can't wait until this comes out. Looks like it may be better than the last one. They had to cut so much from OOTP.

I liked it, too. Wajda is one of my favorite filmmakers actually.
